While each of the pyramids located in the Fayoum might be considered a small necropolis, these pyramids are likewise not located in any large, organized necropolis like many of the fields to the north. In general, the pharaohs who located their pyramids here had a specific interest in the Fayoum, and some of them probably built their palaces in the region. Hence, they were not simply locating their pyramids in a Memphis related necropolis.
